KKtDAY, JANUARY-20, 1039. THE DAILY COURIER. OONNEIXSVILLE. PA. PAGE/ THIRTEEN. Traynor Changes Mind About Breaking Up Pittsburgh Squad Three Players Gone and More Likely to Leave Buccos. FUTURE IS FAR FROM CERTAIN Recuperating PITTSBURGH, Jan. 20.--Manager Harold (Pic) Traynor of the Pittsburgh Pirates said he wouldn't break up the team that finished second in the National League last year, but already he has sent away three players in an effort to bolster the club. The latest to be cut loose was Pitcher Charles Fred (Red) Lucas, veteran of 15 years In the National League. Lucas, who broke into organized baseball -with Nashville in 1920, was given his unconditional release after the Pirates failed to find another job for him. "Winner in only six games last season, the 37-year-old veteran was the second first-stringer to depart since the Chicago Cubs nosed out Pittsburgh in the final days of the last pennant race. Catcher Al Todd and John Dickshot, reserve outfielder, were traded to Boston for. Ray Mueller, who will take over Todd's catching assignment. ... Lucas' release may mean the Pirates are making room for some new faces on the squad. Traynor and President William E. Benswanger tried during the major and minor league meetings to swing a trade but apparently none of the other teams was willing to help strengthen a team ! that was strong enough to finish sec- '· ond in 1938. ' j Pirate officials admit, they still are! casting about for new players but i ^vith no sign of success. Under the; surface, however, they may have one or two trades brewing. -The pitching and catching departments are in need ol improvement · but Traynor believes that Mueller may be just what is needed to steady his hurlcrs. Although a second string catcher, under Al Lopez at Boston, Mueller is a. good, receiver and it is hoped that his batting will improve since the move from spacious Boston field. The only other catcher on the Pirate squad is Ray Berres, a good receiver-and fielder, but weak with a bat. ^Should the Pirates' cleaning-out process continue, the next victims probably will be Pitchers Ed Brandt ond Joe Bowman. They, with First Baseman Gus Suhr and Outfielder Paul Waner, have been mentioned in many trade rumors. Suhr and Wancr have been regulars for many years and have played excellent ball. Mueller's handling of pitchers, according to Traynor, should help the Pirate mound staff. Cy Blanton, especially, is expected to improve and show some of his earlier form. It was rumored last season that Blanton could not pifch effectively to Todd ' because of his higfi stance behind '. the plate. Bob Klinger, the Pirates'.leading pitcher in his first year in the majors, Jim Tobin, Russ Bauers and Blanton --apparently will be the starting hurl. ers in 1939 and they may be joined ; by Mace Brown, if the relief specialist can be developed into a starting pitcher. . · When Brown signed his contract last week, he told Pirate officials that he intended to become a .regular starter. Last season he won.16 games .- Jn relief roles, but was knocked out of the box in both games in which be started.
